I absolutely love being out on the lake, and the other day, I was thinking about getting my fly fishing boxes engraved. After all, the time I spend out on the water is very important to me as I am able to get away from all of the hustle and bustle of my day to day life, and really just kick back and relax. For me, fly fishing has become so much more than just a sport, but rather, it has become somewhat of a whole lifestyle. I really enjoy every aspect of it so much, and many of my friends and family really love going out on the water and catching fish as well. So, as I was standing there the other day, looking over the sparkling reflection of the clear blue sky on the surface of the lake, and just really appreciating the moment, I thought to myself, "I should get my fly fishing boxes engraved."
The very idea of getting your fly fishing boxes engraved is surprisingly not at the top of most people's list of things to do. I mean, to be frank, there are a bunch of people out there who may only go fly fishing once every couple of years. However, there are so many of us who go fly fishing on a regular basis, to the point where it can be compared to the way a lot of people go golfing. And, for many folks out there, fly fishing is somewhat of a tradition, whether among friends or with their family members. Therefore, the fly fishing box can be something special that represents who you are, and can even be part of your legacy that you can pass down to the younger generation. These are some of the reasons why I think getting your fly fishing boxes engraved is a fantastic way to personalize one of your most prized possessions, and really show others how special they are to you.
When choosing an engraving style to customize your fly fishing boxes with, the options are too many to count. I personally prefer a traditional wood engraving that gives sort of an old-world, rustic look to my box. Another really cool option would be to have your words or name engraved onto a brass or sterling silver plate, and then affix that to your fly box. Some may even prefer to place their engraving on the handle of their box, or on the inside of the lid so that it is only visible once the box is opened. Of course, front and center on the outside of the box is probably the most popular placement, because it lets everyone know that this is your box. Now, what you choose to include in your engraving is really the most personal aspect of the whole process. You can opt for having your name or initials used as part of the design, as well as maybe a favorite quote, or a nickname that you are known by. Another great choice would be to have your city or the name of your favorite lake. It's really all up to you, but in the end, getting you fly fishing boxes engraved is a great way to truly make them your own.
